PUEBLO, Colorado — Authorities say a pilot was killed when he crashed his single-engine propeller plane in an open field in southern Colorado.

Las Animas County Undersheriff Derek Navarette tells The Pueblo Chieftain (http://goo.gl/ljlDlZ ) the plane went down a few miles north of the Las Animas County Fairgrounds in Trinidad at about 1 p.m. Thursday. A witness reported seeing the plane circling over his property shortly before it crashed.

The pilot, whose name and hometown have not been released, was the only one on board.

Navarette says the investigation has been turned over to the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

No other information has been released.
